"Consistency may be a question, but flavor is great"
I have tried the SP Double Maduros before and this one slightly below my previous experiences. I could tell it was tightly rolled just by rolling it in my fingers. Once lit this tight roll was also evident in the draw. Although it was not plugged, it took some work to get a decent mouthful of smoke. When this happened the flavor was very full with a peppery earthy tone to it. The flavor was good until just before the band, when the burn became very hot and harsh. I have really enjoyed the other sticks I have had from this line, and would chalk this one up to a bad roll. Will buy again.

"Differnt, but as good as a Fuente Hemingway"
I've smoked most of a box of Quixotes - my brother got the balance. My favorites previously were Hemingways and Excallabur 1066 Merlins. This is just as good and has more flavor. Lots more flavor. Very smooth. This is the most cigar for the money I've found. In fact it's the best cigar for four time the money. Spicy without any harshness. I'm no expert, but I don't understand why it isn't rated higher.

"I love this smoke"
This is a great cigar. Even burn, nice finish. Its a nice smoke to relax with and the price cant be beat. I just recieved another box and will continue to have them on hand. Great smoke to have on hand in the boat.

"A wonderful unexpected experience!"
Wow! I was caught completely off guard. I have smoked cigars long enough to know that you can't judge a good cigar by one stick alone. Every time I light up a Sancho Panza Double Maduro it is exactly as good as the first one I tried. I wasn't sure what to expect with a double maduro but the taste is not overpowering as one might expect. Mild, smooth to draw, and the taste stays on your pallet not in your throat like some harsh cigars we have all smoked at one time or another. This brand has rocketed into my top 5 list! I'll be back for more.

This is an excellent cigar. I'm usually a bit wary of maduros because of the "pepper" and "anise" tastes that you often get, but I got one of these with a sampler and loved it. Bought a box of the La Mancha. Very slow burn - even this little corona lasted a good 45 minutes. Terrific flavors of cocoa and vanilla with a bit of sweetness on the finish. Very smooth and not at all overpowering. I can't think of a better way to spend two bucks.
